I’ve made it to another weekend! Cue the sigh of relief.
For the past 3 months, I’ve been interning with the RSC in their offices in the Testing Center, which is commonly referred to as the most spiritual building on campus. (I don’t know how many times I’ve heard a tour guide make that joke outside the Testing Center.) It’s fitting that I edit for Religious Studies, right? I spend at least 2 hours every day in the Testing Center, but I hadn’t taken a test in there for about a year and a half now. The anxiety and palpable stress are pungent in that building. Walking into the office, I walk by people in tears or wringing their hair in frustration on a daily basis. Let me tell you, I haven’t missed it! Unfortunately, when you finish out your college career with 2 generals, you don’t get that nice pass anymore. I took my Shakespeare midterm in the Testing Center this past week and wrote a (hopefully) awesome essay on grabs for power in the Merchant of Venice. Only 2 1/2 more weeks until this semester is over!
I have a working oven again! Hurray! And it’s a gas stove, which I couldn’t be more excited about. I only wish that my old electric oven could have broken earlier! I broke it in with great dinner and movie night with my old roommate Audrey, and we made tasty Italian breaded pork chops, cheesy garlic bread rolls
, and blueberry boy bait
. We watched Premium Rush
and worked on our blogs for a little bit. Her blog
is adorable, just like she is.
Aaron moves into our new apartment on August 1, and he reminded me that we still need to buy a shower curtain. He asked me tentatively, “Do I have to pick it out because you’re not here?” Of course not, Aaron! Not when there are so many beautiful shower curtains online!
There are some beautiful shower curtains out there, but unfortunately there is a wide disparity in terms of quality between the plastic shower curtains with cliché patterns and the high-end curtains that cost more than my bedspread. They’re probably nicer than my bedspread, too.
Most of the bath accessories that we already have are in varying shades of blue, so I definitely want to find colors that complement those blues. I’m thinking of picking curtains with blue, yellow, or golden rod.
Here are a few of my favorite picks from Pottery Barn and West Elm, two gorgeous sources. Which one do you like? Any favorites?
